Equal Exchange Needs You!

Small Farmers, Big Change
August 10, 2016

Dear Friend,
Equal Exchange needs you.
As Equal Exchange turns 30 this year, and we reflect on the journey we have traveled, we are both immensely proud and infinitely concerned. We have accomplished more than we ever dreamed possible back in 1986. We have sparked enormous reform in the U.S. specialty coffee industry. And we have built a supply chain from scratch that, against all odds, gives small farmer co-ops a fighting chance and a seat at the table.

Who Gets to Set Interest Rates in the New Economy?

Small Farmers, Big Change
May 23, 2016

The following post was written by Daniel Fireside, Equal Exchange Capital Coordinator
What do interest rates have to do with the price of coffee? Why do we care and who decides these things anyway?
As many of you know, coffee is a commodity and as such, is traded on the stock market.  The Fair Trade system broke from the New York “C” market and set up its own, higher prices. Direct relationships allow producers to negotiate contract prices with their buyers.
